Feeling a little left out this Valentine’s? Stop right now, because you’re spectacular. Even if you’re not one-half of a couple, you’re one part of a big, wide world that’s full of love to give and adventures to have - and you don’t need a date to celebrate that.
Here are a few ideas to ditch Cupid and focus this Valentine’s on what’s important.
TREAT YOUR FRIENDS
Facials, amirite? If it’s too late to book into the Salon, invite your mates around and practice some pampering on each other. Your skin will thank you, and you’ll feel pretty great after a good giggle. After all, friends are there for us no matter what, so showering them with a little extra love is always a good idea.
You can’t stop smacking your lips thanks to your fantastic new gloss, so why not share the love? Go with an old favourite to gift to your favourite ladies.
Feeling domestic? Get your bake on, and make extra to stack some Cupid Care Packages for the girls. Or, invite the unattached ones over for a two or three course culinary extravaganza. Wanna make it guilt-free? These recipes are designed to feed your skin (and make your mouth water).
Give yourself a facial or mani/pedi, or spend the night perfecting a new makeup skill. Don’t forget to top it off with a tub of your favourite sorbet and that book you can’t find time to finish. Why not spend time celebrating number one?! Working hard to make your dreams a reality is no easy feat, and taking time to reflect, feel proud and reward yourself for what you’ve accomplished is a good way to feel the self-love - and motivate you to keep crushing it.
Splash out on night cream your skin has been thirsting for, take yourself out to a movie, book in for a blow-wave. Spending on yourself is a high return investment! This is splurge version of pampering yourself, and no expense should be spared.
Others are busy wining and dining (and the group message is silent for once), so maybe this is the perfect opportunity for you to pour a glass of wine or make a cuppa and sit down with some pen and paper. Map out the next year of your life, or write a letter to yourself, talking about the things you’ve worked hard for and the your aspirations for the future.
Put it away and set a calendar pop-up to read it next Valentine’s Day - it’s your little love letter to next-year’s-you, a #PrettySmart reminder that you’re a badass babe.
